Battle Jesuits?

Saw this on the great blog Good Jesuit, Bad Jesuit, and must ask the question -- why doesn't anyone ever pick on the Dominicans or Franciscans?

Victor Gischler is a master of the class-act literary spoof, and his work has drawn comparison to that of Douglas Adams, Kurt Vonnegut, and Thomas Pynchon. Now, Gischler turns his attention to werewolves, alchemists, ghosts, witches, and gun-toting Jesuit priests in Vampire a Go-Go, a hilarious romp of spooky, Gothic entertainment. Narrated by a ghost whose spirit is chained to a mysterious castle in Prague, Gischler's latest is full of twists and surprises that will have readers screaming — and laughing — for more.

The story is about a graduate student on a research trip to Prague who discovers the existence of an ancient device that can resurrect the dead. While questing for it, he runs into a cast of characters including machine-gun-toting priests known as the Battle Jesuits and the omniscient ghost of Sixteenth Century alchemist Edward Kelley.
